The other...I can't find a recording of...and I think it was in our church hymnal growing up. I'm notorious for remembering parts of songs and not being able to figure out the title...and then calling up my parents and singing bits and pieces so they can help me out. Ask them...really! Between that and cooking questions they wonder if I call for any other reasons. Anyhew...it goes like this...It is joy unspeakable and full of glory, fully of glory, full of glory. It is joy unspeakable and full of glory...oh the half has never yet been told!
And how does that connect to your WFW post, dear, flighty Bobbi you are asking? Well, I'll try to tell you!
I was asked this week...Do people around see the light of Jesus in you? How do you appropriate His power and peace?
So, there are areas where I need to clean up my dusty lantern. I really thought about it this week...in our crazy economy, dark world, tumultuous politics...I want to stand firm in the knowledge that He is the (Isaiah 9) Prince of Peace, Everlasting Father....
Wonderful Counselor....and there's where I got the "joy unspeakable" song stuck in my head. He was able to work miracles and do marvelous and astounding things. Judges 13...the angel who visits Samson's parents says his name is "Wonderful"...beyond understanding, full of glory, joy unspeakable. Giving supernatural counsel. WOW!
So, often I forget the source of my LIGHT is GOD! I need to go to the WORD...before I seek out the opinion of friends, family, or books. I need to spend more time in prayer...to be connected with Him...and receiving His Wonderful Counsel...
So, is your little light shining? Does it need some dusting off??
Do people see your JOY? Does it point to HIS glory??
"Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible (unspeakable) and filled with glory," 1 Peter 1:8
